in my book, they are too big, too corrupt, too destructive, too powerful. here in the u.s., there are basically five media companies that own almost all media. and in the uk, it's no different. rupert murdoch and his company simply had too much power. that's why we're seeing high ranking people, even prime ministers, even the head of scotland yard, tied up with this. they had so much power, they had to be kowtowed too. >> lisa bloom, we appreciate that. thank you very much. >> thank you. >>> this scandal is reaching deep now into rupert murdoch's inner circle, and you can be sure that the man at the top is feeling the pressure. murdoch has ads running in seven british papers through monday saying, quote, we are sorry for the phone hacking scandal at the "news of the world." the popular tabloid he just shut down. and here's what he said in his own words. the scandal is widening to another murdoch paper, "the sunday times," and now even the fbi is opening an investigation. the allegations, hacking the personal phones of public figures, and the not so public, from murder vi
of the need for a course correction. but weeks of negotiations have shown his commitment to big government is simply too great to lead to the kind of long-term reforms we need. >> reporter: reid says lawmakers must find a solution. >> we'll stay in session every day, saturday and sunday until congress passes legislation to prevent the united states from defaulting on negotiation. >> reporter: in chicago, key ally expressed support for the mcconnell-reid plan. >> more work to be done. joint committee can tackle it but it's responsible way out of the crisis. >> reporter: lindsey graham favors constitutional amendment but there isn't enough support in the senate. >> we have the people behind us. 72% of the american people want balanced budget. >> reporter: the president called for shared sacrifice. >> i am still pushing for to us achieve a big deal. but what i said to the group is if we can't do the biggest deal possible, then let's still be ambitious. let's still try to at least get a down payment on deficit reduction. >> reporter: but the cochair of the president's own deficit commission ha
tough choices for a big budget deal. today he said without a deal there may not be enough money to send out social security checks. for many republicans in congress, opposing tax has become more than ideology. it's become religion. they're abdicating now their responsibility to co-govern. how are we ever going to get a deal if republican leaders more afraid of the tea party than they are of the economic collapse to come? >>> also, pray away the gay. michele bachmann's husband says the christian counseling practice he runs does not try to pray gay straight, but the video tells a different story. this may make michele bachmann more popular with her base, but what after everyone else? >>> plus, the murdoch scandal keeps getting bigger and bigger. gordon brown told the bbc that murdoch people used known criminals to get access to his personal information and try to bring down his government. the story has now hit the "sunday times" of london and his company stock is sinking. how bad will this get? jon stewart and british ex-pass had fun, a lot of fun, actually, with the murdoch story. that'
. >> announcer: this past year alone there's been a 67% spike in companies embracing the cloud-- big clouds, small ones, public, private, even hybrid. your data and apps must move easily and securely to reach many clouds, not just one. that's why the network that connects, protects, and lets your data move fearlessly through the clouds means more than ever. >>> jack cafferty is here with the cafferty file now. people can watch you stream on a mobile device, an ipad, jack. this is great. >> i have no idea what that means. but i'll trust you. >> it's really good. >> republican congresswoman michele bachmann is a rising star of sorts in a lacklustre to say the least field of gop candidates who hope to challenge president obama next year. bachmann came out on top in three separate polls of likely iowa republican voters last week. go figure. my shael bhaukman's husband marc marcus runs a christian counseling business. former clients say he encourages homosexual patients to try to change their sexual orientation, or at least oppress it. it's called pray away the gay. in an interview, marcus bachm
and what doesn't get paid. another big story right now, a massive and dangerous heat wave is gripping much of the nation. here's how it looks and feels across the country. take a look at the red quarter. temperatures expected to reach 104 degrees in parts of texas today, in the southeast, temperatures are expected to reach the upper 90s and more than just uncomfortable, it's dangerous. heat has already claimed the life of at least one person in illinois and adding to that, the heat is causing drought conditions in the deep south to intensify. also this morning, hundreds of thousands still without power in the chicago area after strong thunderstorms rolled through. officials warn the power there might not be back on until saturday. let's go live to rob marciano outdoors this morning, silly rob, in atlanta's piedmont park. sun still not up, so it's still probably manageable there. but a lot of the south waking up this morning to 80 degrees overnight or higher. >> yeah. that's the thing. really hasn't cooled down much overnight, ali. even if you're out before the sun comes up you're still fee
that she could catch fire. look, when you start this thing, when you win iowa, if you win iowa big, that thing starts rolling through new hampshire and south carolina, it's over in weeks. i agree 100%. >> how was she going in philadelphia suburbs? how is she going to do in the i-4 corridor and in wisconsin? how is she going to do in new mexico, arizona? i would suggest, with swing voters not well at all. >> there's no doubt if you nominate michele bachmann, it's an enormous risk. the only conditions, i think, under which i believe she could win the presidency, if people say, if they did in 1980, i don't care, i'm taking a chance with this guy because what we got we can't stand, you get 9% or 10% unemployment, two more years, this country is ready for a lot of change. more "morning joe" in a moment. with the hotels.com 48-hour sale, the possibilities are endless. interesting... save up to 50% this tuesday and wednesday only. hotels.com. be smart. book smart.  finally, there's a choice for my patients with an irregular heartbeat called atrial fibrillation, or afib, that's not cause
, and they're not a big problem for her. >>> bachmann surged into second place among 12 republicans. mitt romney remains number one at 30%. bachmann is at 16%. that's a big difference from a month ago when she was at 3%. texas governor rick perry comes in third, but he hasn't even decided on a presidential run. >>> today the army major accused of going on a shooting rampage at ft. hood in 2009 will be formally charged. former major nadal hasan will be arraigned today on 13 points of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. hasan will get to enter a plea, but because he faces the death penalty, military law requires him to plead not guilty. attorneys for hasan say they may use an insanity defense. that trial expected to start next march. >>> this morning a taliban spokesman is denying reports the group's leader is dead. the spokesman says a text message sent to journalists claiming the insurgent leader mullah omar had died is fake and the result of a phone hack. rumors of omar's death began to circulate when the text message announced the quote commander of the m
to happen here with rupert murdoch and his son james tomorrow? >> well, that is certainly, that is the big question. and rupert murdoch and his son james, and rebekah brooks, who are appearing before the select committee have to be so careful, and so careful in fact, that rupert murdoch's biographers saying he is in rehearsals and being coached by aides and he is walking a fine line, because on one hand, he is under oath, and so like he and his son and rebekah brooks, they can't lie. if they do lie, it is a crime. so they have to be careful what they say. they can't mislead this group, but at the same time, they don't want to give too much away either, because this is such a reprehensible difficult and negative story that any facts on how to what extent the criminality of how far it went up the ladder at any of the companies as the facts come out, it could well, we could well see a drop from the bottom just out of news corporation. today, already, tamron, we saw a 5% jump in news corp stock in australia. so that the wheels of this amazing story just keep rolling along, and you mentioned in
tennessee. can they sell it to the house republicans? >> that's a big question. i think what we saw today both from president obama and someone like lamar alexander is this isolation that going on of the house republicans, saying, look, the gang of six got a deal, that's why president obama went out this to say it. mitch mcconnell's got a backup plan. john boehner and i were kind of working together and, well, who's out of that picture? the house republicans. and the polls are increasingly showing that the house republican point of view is not popular with the american public. i mean, there's a "washington post" out -- poll out tonight that says that more than three-quarters of americans see the republican leadership as being too resistant. >> however, however, let's listen as we go back to kate bolduan on the hill, the democrats are reading the polls. the democratic leadership going to the floor essentially saying, republicans, why are you wasting our time? >> the public has had it with this theater of the absurd that's going on. they want congress to come together as our president has s
hikers feared dead after reportedly getting caught in a dangerous current and pulled over a big waterfall at yosemite national park. and searchers are out looking for their bodies today wednesday, july 20th, 2011. captions paid for by nbc-universal television >> announcer: live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> and good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on a wednesday morning. i'm matt lauer. >> and i'm ann curry. as you see, it's 76 degrees already at 7:00 a.m. here in new york city. and new york is one of 32 states under a heat advisory warning today. >> i think you can see that shot from above, the haze that's hanging over the city. apparently a lot of the country is trapped inside what people are calling a heat dome. inside that dome temperatures in the 90s and 100s in areas that aren't used to getting that hot. now you throw humidity on top of that, and there is simply no way to escape. how long will all this last? we'll check in with al roker on that in just a moment. >>> then we're going to talk about the woman who can really pack a punch. we're talking about wendy murdoc
and his journalists. most of those calls are from democrats. murdoch is a big banger of republicans. if more momentum build into probes in the united states or even congressional hearings, there are cautionary tales for lawmakers. reports that the tabloids sometimes turn the tables on those who investigate them. most of those accounts date well to well before this scandal blew up in the media in recent weeks. the watchdog group tells us when british parliamentarians looks into the press a couple years ago he heard of allegations she were discouraged from repeatedly inviting rebekah brooks, one of the top execs, to testify. >> the allegation was, they were told, members of that select committee were told, do not invite her again. do not press this, do not push it, because if you do, you'll regret it, and that was made very clear to them. >> reporter: contacted by cnn, no comment on that allegation. are you concerned they might hit back at you and dig into your personal life or whatever? >> i'm not worried about my personal life nor am i worried about my next term. i've been here 27 y
. and they feel that the democrats have an ideological commitment to big government. what they would like to see is the government sweated down. that's the point they've been trying to make. there are honest differences and people have a very different view of what kind of society we ought to live in. >> but at a certain point, david, when there was a big deal on the table and if as you say the president could have brought nancy pelosi along -- i agree with you i think he could have -- the republicans would have gotten a great deficit reduction deal if they hadn't committed to the no tax pledge, right? >> but gloria, asking any party to commit to $1 trillion of tax increases is an awful big deal for a party that all along stood for lower taxes. and when they also feel a lot of these cuts are going to turn out to be illusory. their experience in the past they sign onto the bargains and they feel the democrats eventually end up getting what they wanted and what they wanted never materializes. >> there's a big difference between that and nothing. >> i agree. [ overlapping speakers ] >> so david, wh
political update in the next hour. go to cnn.com/politics. >>> japan not a big soccer country. its women's world cup win is huge and happy news there today. their team out-shot the u.s. yesterday. and zain verjee was there, still is there live in frank further. i know we were rooting for the u.s., zain. that was very important to us, but, hey, it couldn't happen to a better team. they needed this for morale. that is for sure. >> reporter: they really did, you know. japan came into this tournament as the big underdogs. nobody expected them to even get to the finals, let alone beat the u.s. they also knocked out sweden. they knocked out germany and it was just absolutely incredible. when they started the match, everyone was saying they have more skill, better possession of the ball, know how to control and pass it. the americans really did a good job, too. it seems the japanese were a little nervous to start off with. the u.s. had possession. they were aggressive. they came hard out of the gate. they were very unlucky. they had a lot of opportunities and just kept missing. just the mistake
a deal, it starts to weaken the white house i guess. >> reporter: a big deal of deficit reduction obviously is feeling very elusive and chances of doing something like that seem to be very slim at this point. in terms of the debt ceiling, they are very much relying on a plan being worked out by senators reed and mcconnell, top democrat and republican in the senate, to move something forward so the senate can take a lead and the house can then follow suit maybe making some changes. i think right now that's the best hope. i do want to tell you looking at the president's schedule today, it's mighty bare. his normal presidential briefing and meetings with senior advisers but certainly there's a lot of room built in there for any sort of communication he needs to do with congress. >> right. there was talk they are working through the weekend so they are doing everything possible to come to an agreement. >> over night too. >> u.s. and libya hosting secret face to face talks since the libyan conflict began four months ago. the point of the weekend meeting was to send a clear message to m
. rupert murdoch says he runs a big company and couldn't be expected to know the details of illegal conduct at one london tabloid or precisely how it was covered up. the chief executive of news corp. went out of his way to down play his influence. >> sometimes i would say to keep in touch. i edit "the sunday times" nearly every saturday, not to influence what he has to say at all. >> perhaps the most penetrating question came from a member of parliament who wanted to know just where does the buck stop? >> do you accept responsibility for this whole fiasco? >> no. >> you're not responsible. who is responsible? >> the people that i trusted to run it and then maybe the people they trusted. >> the hearing was carried live by all three cable news networks, including murdoch's fox news and made headlines here and around the world. >>> 80-year-old global power broker rupert murdoch called this the most humble day of his life. we watched him called to account in front of british parliament for the scandal that outraged the world. >> rupert murdoch called it the most humbling day of his life and he
>>> the big story, pressure cooker. good day. i'm matt miller in today for dylan ratigan. dylan's hard at work on his upcoming book. >>> a sweltering heat wave grips the nation, the pressure is turned up on washington tore a debt ceiling with just 12 days to go. the white house calling out the "new york times" for sending out a bad alert that obama and boehner are close to a major budget deal. listen in. >> the breaking news, reports that you all have probably received is incorrect. there is no deal. we are not close to a deal. >> in the house, the s&p pulls freshmen republicans aside for waiting to act. holding out to the last minute when the markets tank and believe the ball will be in their tank because in political pro wrestling time means levera leverage. meantime, the cut, cap and balance amendment, demanding a vote because it doesn't have a chance of survival. senator reid trying to put on the pressure with speaker boehner firing right back. >> time is of the essence. when there are people who want to cause problems it takes a long time to get things done. unfortunately,
're going with separation. >> and david, i believe i got to go with big spending cuts in revenues. makes no sense. >> i think the president, i said earlier, has leverage at this point because republicans depicted themselves as hostage-takers ready to blow things up and the public doesn't like this. they stood their ground. pat's right about that. the tea party people would be happy to see $100 billion cut out of the next budget which is in the bill that's up this week, even if that leads tos 700,000 lost jobs. happy top do safety inspections, environmental protection. this is what they want to do and stand by -- >> let's get back to reality. back to reality -- >> no. this is the reality, pat. >> david, what about -- >> david, hold on. let pat make his case. >> let me ask you this, chris. the republicans, say the mcconnell plan has a trillion or a trillion and a half in budget cuts in it. >> i don't think it does. >> in the house it passes. they send it to the president. he's going to veto it, shut down the government and puts if default? come on. >> the whole idea, mcconnell's, separate
